为不确定的未来带来革命性的安全保障。— 避难所科技公司口号


避难所科技公司(英文名:Vault-Tec Corporation) (也被称为避难所科技工业)是前的防卫公司,它设计并实施了一个被称为避难所的掩体网络。[Non-canon 1][1]这些掩体旨在在发生核事件时保护美国的居民。[2][3][4][Non-canon 2]

背景

另见: 避难所

美国卓越的核防御公司早在2031年就已经存在,当时它收购了摩根鎮的当地大学并将其重新命名为避難所科技大學,其中一些顶尖的高管和科学家要么在那里任教,要么从那里毕业。[5]这种对干部的投资将在2050年代初得到回报:当欧洲联邦-中东战争新瘟疫联合国崩溃导致全国性恐慌时,政府设立了安全屋计划[6]2054年中运作。[Non-canon 3]

贫穷的政府用垃圾债券为该项目提供资金,即便如此,在全国范围内也只启用了122个这样的避难所,让不到0.1%的人口在发生大屠杀时能够被挽救。[Non-canon 4]13号避难所的预算为4000亿美元,到其建设结束时,总成本达到6450亿美元,远远超过初始数字的150%。[Non-canon 5]情况进一步增加了惊人的成本: 作为国防的重要组成部分,该项目的大部分内容都受到新修订的间谍法的保密和保护,[Non-canon 6] 该公司在执行安全方面获得了广泛的特权,包括授权其私人安全在激活避难所时使用致命武力。[7]缺乏监督导致持续的管理不善,[8][9][10]腐败,[11][12]和贪污[13]在战前定义安全屋计划,甚至在考虑到残暴的避难所实验之前。然而,对于所有这些问题,避难所科技能够创造出许多尖端技术并开发出合法保护居民的避难所。[Non-canon 7]

其中一些奇迹表现为建筑科技的突破,使这些巨大的掩体得以快速建造。[Non-canon 8]大部分在2063年之前完成,尽管几个避难所的建造被推迟,特别是13号避难所(仅在2063年8月开始建造)和华盛顿特区周围的网络[Non-canon 9]因停工而延误。 [14]尽管存在这些问题,避难所科技还是开始在新吞并的加拿大中宣传避难所,尽管这些都处于完成的早期阶段。[15]

不管核战争如何,避难所科技都有自己的避难所计划。该公司决定将它们用作测试环境,以创造可用于重新定义社会的技术。为此目的,整个避难所被留作试验场,旨在测试各种原型设备,目的是将它们推广到避难所的其余部分。[16]一旦88号避难所全面投入使用,该公司预计将在每个财政季度推出新设备。与其他避难所不同的是,避难所科技会在任何灾难情况发生之前发送测试对象,从2078年初开始。[16]人的生命被认为是无关紧要的,快速迭代时间被优先考虑。这些原型旨在将“无用”的锻炼转化为对社会有用的活动,操纵居民的情绪,甚至发展粗略的精神控制形式。[17]道德问题被认为适得其反和思想封闭而被驳回。[18]

核战争

在已完成的避难所中进行的训练慢慢地产生了狼来了效果:随着时间的推移,参加演习的人数越来越少,限制了避难所未来在确保人类生存方面的作用。[Non-canon 9]然而,即使他们不这样做,影子政府还是决定不让避难所成为保护人类的庇护所。[Non-canon 10]在建立对安全屋项目的控制后,他们为了自己的目的颠覆了它。作为社会保护计划的一部分,避难所的建造不是为了拯救人类,而是为了测试他们的人口。[19]只有17个避难所被设计为作为控制避难所正常工作。[20]其他105个避难所以各种场景为特色,从烦人到彻头彻尾的致命,以衡量人类如何在这些场景中为自己的邪恶目的采取行动。[Non-canon 11]有些人没有为他们的人口提供足够的食物合成器,有些人只有男人,或者被设计为过早打开。该实验的目的是为英克雷自己的项目收集数据,具体目的尚不清楚。[21]

当2077年10月23日到来并发生大戰时,避难所科技空袭警报响起,但狼来了效应导致只有一小部分人进入了避难所。它们被密封,实验进入了决定性阶段。[Non-canon 12]控制避难所按预期运作并保护其人口。然而,其他人就没有那么幸运了。在接下来的几十年里,许多避难所都会因为他们的实验而失败。少数幸存下来的人往往会繁荣昌盛。2091年,收到清空信号后,8号避难所开放,地下掩體都市成立。[Non-canon 13]一年后,洛杉矶废墟中的示范避难所开放。 居民们在被称为晒骨场的地方建立了内城区[Non-canon 14][Non-canon 15]

企业模式

避难所科技的主要重点是开发一系列核战争防御设施及其建造所需的技术。尽管他们最知名的产品仍然是避难所,但该公司还开发了更便宜的替代品,例如系列1000避难所[1]并将其技术外包给其他需要经过验证的地下掩体建造方法的实体。[22]它的专有发明旨在提高避难所居民的生活质量,包括SimuSun Lighting、Floorsuck Autocleaner Systems、Culinator 3000 Kitchen Systems、Entertainotron Rooms 和Eye-On-You camera[23]

除了维持地下人口所需的建筑和技术外,避难所科技还开发了核反应堆(例如避难所之星),[24]器官提取器等医疗器械,[25] motion sensor基于瓦茲電子的设计,[26] 甚至是SimTek 5000虚拟现实模拟套件,用于让避难所居民适应外部环境[Non-canon 16]以及避難所科技輔助瞄準系統用于应对任何威胁。[Non-canon 2]

未来科技是公司里的一个部门,负责开发尖端技术,让避难所居民勇敢面对后核世界的恐怖。他们的最高成就是G.E.C.K.[Non-canon 17]

产品

在首都的科技博物館举行的大型展览旨在宣传他们的庇护所并解释其功能,[23]同时,还通过宣传巡展和颁发平整的避难所连身衣奖等奖品来宣传公司的正面形象。[27]核子世界景点也突出了避难所可以为地球外的人类做些什么的理想主义公众形象。为推广避难所而开发的大型商品系列,该公司也是他们努力的一部分,包括棒球帽、午餐盒、T恤、皮革飞行员夹克、高尔夫球T恤、饮料舒适用品、避難所小子搖頭娃娃(和配套的搖頭娃娃收藏架),以及展示全国地标的限量版雪景球[28]

与员工关系

然而,避难所科技员工的实际情况完全不同。员工们收到了避难所科技员工手册,这是一本具有纪念意义的出版物,其中概述了公司及其程序的所有内容,包括上厕所的时间。这些规定无异于严厉和压迫:避难所科技的人力资源和行政部门考虑2.25分钟(135秒)是浴室休息的合理时间长度。剥削性和虐待性的劳动做法似乎是常态。[29][30]作为政府的战略防御承包商,避难所科技的事务和所有相关出版物(包括,例如,避难所居民生存指南)受到新修订的间谍法的保护,任何举报的企图都可能对举报人造成比公司更大的伤害。[Non-canon 6]

演习

避难所科技被授权为被选入避难所的公民进行演习,并运行自己的警报系统。定期进行Beta警报演习(有时每周多达五次),以测试准入协议并为未来的避难所居民做好准备,以便在发生Alpha警报的情况下有序进入避难所。实验人员每次都要参加演练。[31]只需为科学家(通常是毕业生甚至学生)提供高额薪水就可以实现合规性和保密性,[32]如果他们决定告发,就暗示要动用武力。[33]

    Barstow's coming tomorrow. Another dog and pony show. Entrance is finally properly done. So if she brings VIPs, as long as they stick to that section, it'll feel like a real Vault.
    Turns out the construction boys aren't so bad. Been having a friendly poker game. From the way things are going, they're going to be here a good long while yet. Got invited to some Halloween party. God knows we could use a little excitement around here.
    August 29, 2077
    Finally got a real security system. I know the entrance is window dressing, but if Barstow keeps bringing the top brass around it's my ass if something goes wrong.
    The construction crew keeps griping about the new security measures. They can complain all they like."
    This shows Vault 88 construction was deliberately faked to appease Valery Barstow and the higher ups, and this was another deliberate fake ("another dog and pony show").
